Hocus Pocus 2: Will the Original Cast return?
The original cast of Hocus Pocus has not been confirmed yet to be a part of the film but fans and Adam have their fingers crossed! Even original "Sanderson Sister" Bette Midler herself said when asked if she is in the new film "I hope they get to me before I'm a corpse!" Midler said "Winifred" is one of her favorite characters she ever played. She put a spell on us too!
